JetBrains' IDEA has a superior and simple solution to this problem: 
expanding areas selection. This is one of the features I miss the most 
in Textmate.

"expanding areas selection:"
"Ctrl+W (select word) in the editor selects a word at the caret and then 
selects expanding areas of the source code. For example, it may select a 
method name, then the expression that calls this method, then the whole 
statement, then the containing block, etc."

, and "Shift-Ctrl+W" is the reverse action.

And if you use CamelHumps, Ctrl-W will play it smart by stopping on Humps.
